The Harper government needs to explain to Canadians how it intends to review and address national security concerns related to Verizon Communications' entry into this country's wireless market. Verizon has been deeply involved in the world's biggest ever spying scandal, as revealed by former CIA contractor Edward Snowden.
Dear Prime Minister Stephen Harper: I read with interest that you are considering allowing Verizon Communications to operate Canada with unique acquisition rights. Bad idea. Why would you allow one of our country's most aggressive tax dodgers, a company with a track record of overtly ripping off our government, into your country?
